 Envelope (disambiguation) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An envelope is a thin paper container formed by folding a sheet of paper and securing the edges, and is the major staple consumable of a letterpost service.
An envelope is a mathematical curve, surface, or higher dimensional object defined as being tangent to a given family of lines or curves (or surfaces, or higher dimensional objects, resp.).
An envelope is a curve that bounds another curve or set of curves, as the modulation envelope of an amplitude-modulated carrier wave in electronics.

Any handmade envelope is effectively a lettersheet because prior to the folding stage it offers the opportunity for writing a message on that area of the sheet which after folding becomes the inside of the face of the envelope.
Some envelopes are designed to be reused as the return envelope, saving the expense of including a return envelope in the contents of the original envelope.
But although the paper from which these first machine-made envelopes were made was cut to the shape of a rhombus or diamond and creased ready for folding to form a rectangular enclosure, it did not have the edges of the overlapping flaps treated with a paste or adhesive.

 Bat Detectors
The bat detector is one of the most fundamental tools of the researcher into ultrasonic bio-acoustics since it enables direct observation of the acoustic behaviour of an animal whether in the laboratory or in the field.
The simplest form of bat detector is to monitor the waveform from the microphone on an oscilloscope.  This technique is useful for monitoring general activity levels, and with a suitable type of camera can be used to record the signals on film (Griffin 1958).
The frequency divider type of detector is capable of doing this but suffers from the fact that information about the presence of harmonics is lost, and It is not possible to tell whether frequency changes are real or simply shifts of energy from one harmonic to another.

 [music-dsp] 2nd order biquad for envelope detector?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
One rationale for using a higher-order envelope smoother, would be to use 'pretty short' envelope release, while minimizing ripple in the envelope.
For instance, using a typical first-order IIR attack-release envelope smoother, with a release time of 100 mS-- the wave period of a low-E Bass Guitar string is ~25 mS, so it is pretty obvious the envelope control ripple is gonna be pretty big, causing lots of intermodulation distortion if you use a large compression ratio.
When using a simple first-order IIR envelope smoother, in my experience if you set the envelope release long enough to avoid 'gurgly modulation', the auto-wah is too slow for good effect on fast bass lines.

 Signal integrity control technique for an RF communication system - Patent 4998289
The circuit includes a logarithmic envelope detector for receiving a channel's angular modulated signal and for providing a log envelope output signal, a high pass filter for removing a particular range of undesired frequencies from the log envelope output signal, and a level detector for indicating the level of filtered output signal.
More specifically, the logarithmic envelope detector 150 will provide an AC output signal having a magnitude that is directly related to the percentage of amplitude modulation in the envelope of the received (IF) signal regardless of the absolute magnitude of the received (IF) signal.
The (HPF) 152 receives the output signal from the detector 150 to filter out the DC term at the output of the Log envelope detector as well as the low frequency modulation produced by any fading which might be present on the received (IF) signal.

Their inverse modulator only partially demodulates the envelope by increasing it by +6db on negative peaks and decreasing it by -3.5db on positive peaks and no phase term enters into the equation other than that an interfering signal will add to the envelope but will have little impact on the inverse modulator.
Since the Kahn stereo receiver uses a quadrature synchronous detector and partially demodulates the envelope to reduce distortion why not generate the signal so that the generation is the mathematical inverse of this reception method.
The envelope of the incoming signal is 50% demodulated with a inverse modulator and then detected by a quadrature detector for L-R and 1+L+R is detected with an envelope detector.

For instance, the envelope detector could also be used to drive a "gating" module for noise reduction or for a backwards-tape effect, or to drive the speed of an LFO.
Notice that the envelope detector, Module 7, should be first it the FXBus chain, as it buffers the input signal and redrives the signal into the next FXBus "In" point, and also generates the "SCout" sidechain signal that modulates the filter response of the VCF.
The most obvious uses are to buffer the envelope out or to invert the output of the first opamp to convert to a full-wave rectified envelope detector for smoother results.

 AM Stereo, How It Works
This process gives the C-QUAM signal a normal AM envelope containing the L+R or monophonic audio, for compatibility with existing monophonic AM radios using envelope detectors, while the L-R stereo difference signal is encoded in the carrier phase.
First, since the envelope of the C-QUAM signal is a faithful copy of the L+R sum signal, an envelope detector is used to recover the L+R sum signal, or monophonic audio.
The L+R sum signal from the envelope detector is then compared, in an error amplifier, with the L+R audio signal coming out of the QUAM synchronous demodulator.

Not moving away from the envelope detector and reaping the benefits of synchronous detectors is too big a sacrifice to maintain only partial compatibility with envelope detectors.
The first multiplicative process is envelope detection itself because of the non-linear nature of the envelope detector's response to the desired and interfering signals.
Now there is a signal quality detector that is supposed to reduce the amount of cosine correction and other stuff as interference increases so it may be possible to feed the I Det signal back into the Env Det pin when cosine correction is completely disabled if that ever occurs during poor signal conditions.

 Technology Transfer - Type-based Baseband Predistorter Function Estimation Technique for Nonlinear Power Amplifiers
The invention is based on two important observations: (a) the envelope of a signal with given modulation scheme and pulse shaping function has a unique statistical distribution or “type,” and (b) the response of the power amplifier is continuous (and monotonous for AM to AM) up to its saturation point.
Thus the key to this invention is the use of the distribution function of the modulated signal's envelope at the output of the power amplifier (PA).
The resulting instantaneous envelope is then digitized and fed to a digital signal processor (DSP) where the distribution function of the signal envelope is calculated.

 Synchronous Detection in the Sony 7600G
Although envelope detection was used in the old crystal sets and still is used today in most digitally-tuned superhets, synchronous detection is not merely a high-tech frill to add to an already high-tech digitally-tuned receiver.
When a receiver uses an envelope detector, and several of the differently timed signals are among the stronger signals that the receiver "hears", multipath distortion (sometimes called selective fading or QSB) can cause an "in-and-out" effect on the receiver's audio.
Since part of its process is instant-by-instant calculation of the desired signal's carrier frequency and continuously re-tuning the receiver to track the carrier, the synchronous detector compensates, instant-by-instant, for the multipath distortion, and thereby reduces or eliminates the "in-and-out" effect at the receiver's audio output.

 [RT] RT] Re: IBOC-QUAM
IIRC, the output of an envelope detector is SQRT(I^2 + Q^2), where I and Q are the in-phase and quadrature components respectively.
The carrier biases the detector to ensure that this positivity constraint is true.) The square root operator, being nonlinear, will cause a certain amount of intermodulation between the I and Q components.
Moreover, because a synchronous detector is linear, there will be no intermodulation between the IBOC sidebands and the analog audio.

Assuming that detection is limited only by the variability in the envelope height, Jeffress estimates what he call the effective bandwidth as the width of a filter which when followed by an envelope-height detector would perform as well as the observer.
At the same time the signal from the tape was processed by an electrical detector, which consisted of an RLC (single-tuned) band-pass filter, a square law detector, and an exponential integrator, all followed by a chart recorder.
That is, if one correlated the output of the energy detectors with varying integration times with observer responses, one would probably find that on signal trials an integrator whose integration time is near the duration of the signal correlated best with the observers' responses, but that the longer duration integrators correlated best on noise-only trials.

If the detector is to be used only for detection it does not matter which half of the envelope is used, either will work equally well.
This type of detector or demodulator is called a linear envelope detector because the output is proportional to the input envelope.
Additionally these detectors (demodulators) are susceptible to the effects of selective fading experienced on short wave broadcast transmissions.

 (Written by Farial Mahbub)
Frequency modulation encodes data by performing shifting of frequency, phase modulation performs shifts in phase, and amplitude modulation controls the envelope of the carrier wave.
The envelope detector is essentially made up of a rectifier and a low pass filter (see figure below).
Thus, if an input voltage that varies according to the modulation envelope is used, the information present in the sidebands would be successfully recovered.
